About Gary

My story

I’ve worked for myself and ran my own businesses from the age of 21, always using my hands from mechanic to kitchen designer, manufacturer and installer with a staff of 12 – in between for as long as I can remember I was always being creative, drawing, painting and making things. Some of these businesses were successful, and others not so successful. So much so. In 2009, I lost everything, my business, my long term partner, my home; I hit rock bottom. I felt a failure and went personally bankrupt.

I blamed it on everyone and everything. But what was staring at me in the bathroom mirror was someone who failed to recognise the part they played in this downward spiral. The reflection I was seeing was one of failure, low self-esteem and lack of confidence. The only person to get me out of this downward cycle was going to be me. The only problem was I didn’t know how to create it?


I knew the power of self-development, and by chance, I stumbled upon the coaching academy website – I don’t know how or why. And in 2010, I attended one of their two-day taster events to become a life coach. I did not enrol at that time, but what I did do was seek a life coach’s help.

It was the one thing that saved me that transformed and changed my life forever. My coach inspired and motivated me to believe in myself, instilled me with confidence, live congruent with my core values, take responsibility for my actions, and encouraged and empowered me to take action. I remember her saying to me, “This is not a dress rehearsal; you only get one shot at this life. What are you going to do with it? life is too short to keep repeating the cycle”, she said.

Curiosity got the better of me, being an artist, I guess, helped me to create the bigger picture.

What If I can do for others what a coach did for me? Help someone progress from a place of unfulfillment, uninspired and unmotivated to having the confidence and belief in themselves. Create their dreams and future to live a happier, more fulfilled life?

Those words inspired me to become a life coach myself. So, I trained for two long years. I gained my diploma in life coaching from the Coaching academy – the worlds largest life coaching organisation – to become the person I am today.

When I look at my reflection in the mirror, it’s one of transformation, one of pride and achievement. I have two beautiful children, and four fantastic grandchildren, I have a thriving business and a life full of adventure, joy and surprises.

I genuinely believe that we all have the potential to search within ourselves to help create, contribute and inspire to make a difference in peoples lives. After all, you would not be here today without the contribution that others have made, from the doctors and nurses who brought you into this world, your parents, teachers, partners, and friends who have helped and guided you along your path. And, If you had the confidence to create one thing right now about your path, what would it be?

My coaching style

I’m not the type of coach who uses blue sky jargon, long, meaningful descriptions or complex analysis to explain something that can be described in one sentence or even one word. I remember being told when I was qualifying for my coaching diploma to stop describing coaching and be a coach. Simple isn’t it when someone else can see what you can’t see. That is what a coach can do. And, perhaps I can help create that for you too?
